This is, by far, thee most expensive upgrade I have ever made. FULL SOLID STATE SERVER (technically not...mechanical array for backup), 12TB of solid state storage using Intel DC S4500s.
My family will never hear the price-tag for all of these...I plan to get them sled mounted and installed tonight. Benchmarks will happen tomorrow. Plans are to test RAID0, 5, 6, & raidz3("7"). This is like Linus's old SSD Server but 1/2 scale and with much more modern drives...and HBAs instead of RAID cards...and no plan to do RAID50...or use Windows Server...OK its not very similar. I am using the same chassis though. Norco RPC-4224. Nice case...except those damn SFF-8087 cables Leadeater you know what I'm talking about. I swear the day that fan fails is the day I'll need brand new cables. Anyways, benchmark results will be posted some time tomorrow for those interested.
